Buhari, Osinbajo To Declare Assets Publicly

The details of the assets of President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will be announced publicly.

The presidency said that assets be published upon the completion of their confirmation by the Code of Conduct Bureau (CCB).

It is considered that this procedure will be realized before the expiration of the 100-day deadline within which they said they would do this.

Garba Shehu, the presidential aide, announced this in a comment on behalf of the President on June 6, Saturday.

He said: “The duly completed forms by both the President and the Vice President were submitted to the CCB on March 28th, a clear day ahead of their inauguration.”

The assistant added that this statement was guaranteed by the need to clear up some suggestions that the President and the Vice-President may not, after all, make their assets public.

The statement reads: “While such public display of concern is appreciated and valued, it must be said that it is a little precipitate.

“As required by law, the declaration and submission of documents to the CCB have been made, but there still remains the aspect of verification which the Bureau will have to conduct to authenticate the submissions made to it.

“In the circumstances, it is only after this verification exercise, and not before, that the declaration can be said to have been made and validated; and only after this, will the details be released to the public.

“There is no question at all that the President and the Vice President are committed to public declaration of their assets within the 100 days that they pledged during the presidential campaign.
